Former Vipers SC striker Erisa Ssekisambu will not be able to see out his two-year contract at Gor Mahia.
The Kenyan giants have decided to part ways with Ssekisambu after only a year into his two-year deal.
It is understood that the former Venom failed to impress in his first season and that is the reason he is being offloaded.
“Ssekisambu failed to impress during the short time he has been with us and the coach does not want him to stay,” a source told Goal.com.
The move was also taken to clear space for incoming foreign players as Gor Mahia already has six foreign players in their ranks, more than what is permitted by the foreign quota rule by the Kenyan Premier League Limited.
The quota rule permits each Kenyan Premier League club to have a maximum of five foreign players in their teams.
Sekisambu who was unveiled in November 2018 managed five goals in the half season.
David Mapigano, Dickson Ambundo, Francis Mustapha, Hashim Sempala and Shafiq Batambuze remain as foreign players at Gor Mahia.
Not only Ssekisambu will be leaving Gor Mahia. Castro Ogendo, Pascal Ogweno, Cercidy Okeyo, Shaban Odhoji, and Francis Kahata will also not be part of thier squad next season.
Francis Kahata was signed by Simba SC of Tanzania while Jacques Tuyisenge joined Angolan side Petro Atletico.
Reports coming from Kenya also indicate that another Ugandan, Hashim Sempala is on his way out of Gor Mahia.
The Ugandan midfielder is reported to have asked to be released.
“It is true that Sempala wants out, he has already demanded the release letter and the club is considering his demands, maybe this will also help them to balance the foreign quota rule.” A source narrated to Goal.com
Gor Mahia have already seen three key players depart as George Odhiambo, Francis Kahata and Jacques Tuyisenge have moved on.
The K’Ogalo have also signed Dickson Ambundo, David Mapigano, Tobias Otieno, Dennis Oalo and Elvis Ronack.
